How Does Shockwave Work?

It involves the use of a medical device to pass shockwaves through the skin to the injured part of the body. The shockwaves are generated by a projectile that is propelled at high speed inside a hand-held applicator.

As the shockwaves enter the body, they initiate an inflammatory-like response in the injured tissue that is being treated. This prompts the body to respond by increasing blood circulation, stimulating the body’s natural healing process, and breaking down calcium deposits in tendons.

What makes it unique is that it is one of the very few technologies that seems to work best when an injury reaches the chronic state. This shockwave appears to be able to jump start the healing process in chronic injuries and move them back into the acute phase of healing.

Back Pain

If you have back pain, whether new or long-term, you know how it can interfere with your daily life.

Knee Pain

If you have knee pain, you’re not alone. Frequent knee pain affects around one in four adults.

Neck Pain

From a wry neck to arthritis, muscle spasm to a ‘dowager’s hump’, necks are a common source of pain.

Shoulder Pain

Under normal circumstances, the shoulder has the greatest mobility of any of the body’s joints. But when something goes wrong, it can mean pain, limitation and frustration.

Sciatica

Sciatica refers to pain that runs from the low back into the buttock and down the back of the thigh. It may go below the knee and into the foot.

Heel Pain

There are many causes of heel pain. These include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinosis, heel spurs, and stress fractures.

I had an appointment for my 16 week old baby and for myself with Simon Barron. My baby has been having some feeding issues and trapped wind. Instantly I felt heard, and in safe hands. Simon is so knowledgeable and explained why we might be having these problems & why the baby might be a bit tense in certain areas. It all made sense finally. Simon was gentle and so good with my baby (he really enjoyed it and was all smiles!) Simon taught us exercises and techniques to try at home with the baby and they are already helping him. I’m so grateful we found Simon and will be returning frequently. Don’t fret if you’re wondering about doing this for your baby, it’s 100% worth it!

Simon and Josh are two of the best Osteopaths I’ve seen at Good Health for my sport injuries. They have helped me prepare for Hyrox, treated running and cycling injuries. I’d highly recommend them both!

I have used the Good Health centre over many years. Seb, one of the osteopaths, helps me maintain a quality of life that I wouldn't otherwise enjoy. He is always patient and kind, and treats me with respect. The receptionists are always cheerful, and make one feel welcome. I would highly recommend.
